Re: Democrats trying to be entertainers
berberry asks:

Can you quote anything that's as vicious and uncaring as the Coulter quotes I posted?

Michael Moore spouts similar things all the time. He's the one whose first reaction to the September 11 terrorist attacks, posted at the MoveOn.org site on September 12, was to suggest that terrorists aim for 'red states' instead of places like New York.

Here's another sample (in an article full of them) from Christopher Hitchens in Slate:

In a recent interview, [Moore] yelled that if the hijacked civilians of 9/11 had been black, they would have fought back, unlike the stupid and presumably cowardly white men and women (and children). Never mind for now how many black passengers were on those planes—we happen to know what Moore does not care to mention: that Todd Beamer and a few of his co-passengers, shouting "Let's roll," rammed the hijackers with a trolley, fought them tooth and nail, and helped bring down a United Airlines plane, in Pennsylvania, that was speeding toward either the White House or the Capitol.

I'd say he and Coulter were made for each other.

They'd look suitably hilarious sitting side by side, too.

Re: Confession
A white-haired man races into a cathedral and asks to speak at once to a priest. The priest takes him into the confessional.

'What is your burden, my son?'

'I'm a widower, Father,' says the man. 'My wife, God rest her soul, passed away 15 years ago. Since then I've led a quiet life. But last weekend I took a business trip. The lovely young woman who worked at the front desk took a liking to me. We met for lunch and... well, one thing led to another. We made love 15 times in three days.'

'Say 10 Hail Marys,' said the priest.

'Hail Marys?' said the man. 'Why would I do that? I'm Jewish.'

'Jewish?' said the priest. 'I don't get it. If you're Jewish, why tell me this?'

'Tell you?' said the man. 'I'm telling everybody.'

Re: existential humor
Rene Descartes walks into McDonald's.

The perky kid behind the counter says 'May I take your order, sir?'

Descartes looks up at the menu and says 'I think I will have a Big Mac, and some French fries, and a vanilla shake.'

The perky kid says 'Would you like a hot apple pie with that, sir?'

Descartes says 'I think not'--and disappears.
